As we all know veggies are VERY hard to get into our little ones tummies. There are some people that just luck out and have kiddos that love veggies......but I deffinately wasnt blessed with kids like that. I have to basically cut veggies up and sneak them into their food so they can't see them. Before I had kids I always said that I wasnt going to have picky kids. I tried my hardest to give them their veggies so that they would eat them without a fight. Yea, that didn't work. My eldest is VERY stubborn so almost every meal is a fight. He actually loves everything that he eats.....even veggies. It is just getting him to eat them that is the trick.
Thanks to MyBlogSpark and Green Giant I received a Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers prize pack. The package contains 2 Green Giant placemats, a Broccoli stress reliever (which my son LOVES using with his play food), a 32 oz. serving bowl, a surprise face serving spoon, and a coupon to try out Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers.I was so excited to try them out. When I went to the store I was expecting to just have a few options to choose from, but there was a whole freezer full. There was everything from rice dishes to maccaroni with broccoli, pasta with veggies and alfredo, and tons of other chioces to choose from. I choose the Garden Vegetables Medely. It has red skin baby potatoes, snap peas, and red peppers with an herb sauce. I decided to just cook it in the microwave how the package says too. I never cook in the microwave because it tastes so much better cooked on the stove. I wasnt sure how it was going to turn out just because it was cooked in the microwave. Suprisingly it wasnt too bad. The potatoes were a little bit mushy but the snap peas were cooked perfectly.
Would I buy them again?? Maybe if I needed something quick and healthy I probably would. Deffinately if I found them on sale! If I am just cooking regular probably not, just because fresh is so much better. I would love to recreate the exact same thing just with fresh veggies! It really was easy to make and if you are wanting a quick and healthy meal it is the perfect addition.
